A picture is being shared on social media where Prime Minister Modi can be seen bowing down in front of a woman.
The text attached to the picture claims that the said woman is the wife of business tycoon Gautam Adani. “भाईओ यह महिला उद्योगपति अडानी की पत्नी है जो इंसान झुका हुआ(बिका हुआ) है वो हमारे देश का PM है।गिर ही जा ना पैरों पर, ” the text read.
At the time of filing the report, the above post had over 3,000 shares on Facebook.
When NewsMobile fact-checked the picture, we found the claim to be fake.
We ran a search and found that the viral picture is from 2014 when PM Modi landed in Tumkur to inaugurate a mega Food Park at the Vasanthanarsapura. In this image, PM Modi can be seen greeting Geetha Rudresh, former Mayor of Tumkur, Karnataka.

We found an article by Vijay Karnataka dated September 25, 2014, that features the same picture. According to the report, this picture was taken when Geetha Rudresh received PM Modi upon his arrival at the airport.
OneIndia Kannada’s article also confirmed that PM Modi was greeted by Geetha Rudresh.
The above information proves that the woman in the picture is not Gautam Adani’s wife and hence, the claim is fake.
